This week, our clinical assistant, Ariana, is vacationing in Spain with her family. Her grandfather wanted the whole family to go as a celebration of his 80th birthday! What a nice idea. So that we could "see her off," we all got together for lunch this past Saturday at Karl Strauss in 4S Ranch. The photo above was taken after lunch. We had a nice time. I appreciated having the opportunity to talk with her about her trip and what she and her family had planned. She was leaving the next morning at 4 a.m.
While Ariana is gone, I've been filling in for her. People around the hospital have been surprised to see me in scrubs. It's been fun working directly with our patients and assisting Dr. Yoo. We definitely miss Ariana, though!
